Shoab Malek is a pharmaceutical consultant and a GMP auditor, located in India. Malek talked to Yan Kugel about the big challenges that India faces because of COVID-19. Being the biggest generic pharmaceutical exporter in the world, it may influence the whole globe. The prices in India for many drugs have already doubled or tripled, for many reasons:

  • Raw material shortage
  • Packaging material shortage
  • Shortage of skilled workers
  • Not enough storage places for finished goods
  • The supply chain to the rest of the world has completely stopped
